Obviously where it says to make a folder on your desktop, substitute USB stick.

I just copied and pasted this and forgot to change it :-(

Thats a great help wish I'd asked years ago. Now then is it possible to do this with the "Bolcked Message" list because I have a list as long as your arm of trash that comes & if I can bring that list it would be helpful but how to do it....?
